Survey information is solicited through traditional mail, email, and online questionnaires.
Each data submission is thoroughly screened by our team of experienced researchers prior to
inclusion in a survey. No attempt is made to alter incumbent data as reported other than
to normalize collected compensation amounts to a common date. Data collection begins
October and ends March. Survey results are published annually in July, with an
effective data date of March 31 of the given survey year.
